Believe it or not, we get it. Marriage and relationships are really hard. Parenting is even harder, especially when you’re trying to do it alone. Looking for work is a vulnerable and scary thing. If you don’t know where to look, or who to ask, rejections keep coming until you don’t want to look anymore. Stress feels like a ball of barbed wire in your stomach, or a bus parked on your shoulders. If there is no relief in sight, or nobody to hold onto it and give you a break, it becomes unbearable. See? We get it.
We know it’s hard to trust people, so we want to promise you a few things: We and our volunteers will not judge you. We will love you as well as we can. We will help you in every way we can. We will never take custody of your children or do anything without your consent. We will cheer for your success like you’re our brother or sister. We will never stop believing that your life has been hard until now, but a better future is ahead of you and your family.
